One photograph of this bed kind of says it all. My husband would have put this bed in the trash for sure, however, if you love chippy peely paint, this is right up your alley. I bought this bed from the sweet hoarder lady I purchased my primitive cabinet from. In fact, she was so sweet, I felt good about everything I purchased from her.
I hosed it down to get all the excess peeling paint off of it and this is what remained. It has a certain charm about it, don't you think? Great for a beach cottage look. I love the red with all of my aqua furniture. Here I cleared out the furniture in the middle to reveal a little more of its charm. That little trunk in the middle of the bed is actually a new piece. It was a prop in Johnny Depp's Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
Yes, this bed has seen better days, but I still couldn't resist it. We do have a customer base that loves this kind of stuff.
On another funky note, it is now prohibited in the State of California to sell taxidermy items. So what are we to do with our store mascot? We dress him up for all the holidays. Yeah, I know, very silly, but we do have a lot of fun. After all, my motto is if it's not fun, don't do it! So I hope you all have fun this Memorial Day weekend. It's my husband's birthday too so we have a double celebration going on.
